The Indo-European Controversy: Facts and Fallacies in Historical Linguistics

By Asya Pereltsvaig and Martin W. Lewis

This book "asserts that the origin and spread of languages must be examined primarily through the time-tested techniques of linguistic analysis, rather than those of evolutionary biology" and "defends traditional practices in historical linguistics while remaining open to new techniques, including computational methods" and "will appeal to readers interested in world history and world geography."

Title: Anejom~ Dictionary (Disonari blong Anejom~)
Written By: John Lynch
Philip Tepahae
Description:

Anejom~ is the language of Aneityum, the southernmost island in Vanutatu. This dictionary, compiled by a professional Oceanic linguist and a native speaker of the language, contains almost 5,000 Anejom~ lexical items, with definitions in both English and Bislama (the national language of Vanuatu). Both English-Anejom~ and Bislama-Anejom~ finderlists are provided to make the dictionary accessible both to linguists and to ni-Vanutatu who may not speak or read English. The dictionary uses a newly devised orthography, which more accurately reflects the phonology of the lanugage than the one in current use. It is hoped that the dictionay will prove valuable to linguistics, to native speakers, and to children learning to read and write in the language.
